Maggie & Georgie in Austin, TX


Here they are with their new family……

Maggie is a 20-pound Blenheim, female Cavalier, estimated to be 5-year-old and Georgie is a 40-pound Blenheim, male Cavalier, estimated to be 7-years-old. They came into rescue as a bonded pair because their owner could no longer care for them. Both dogs are very sweet and well behaved!

Maggie is very spunky and nicknamed the Mountain Goat by her foster family because she loves to climb the stairs in their backyard and sleep on the back of the couch. She is very curious and LOVES to be outside. She sniffs and sniffs, finding bugs and even found a garden snake, though to our knowledge, she doesn’t bother anything or bring them inside. Maggie likes to play and tries to get the other dogs to play with her often. She seeks out Georgie for directions on where to go and what to do. She gives kisses once she feels comfortable with you and she loves ear-scratches. Maggie does tend to sit at your feet, so it is important to be careful when getting up, so as not to step on her. She also eats plants and at her foster house all plants have been moved out of her reach.

Georgie is an extra large Cavalier. Just more to love! His current weight is 40 pounds. He likes to snuggle and loves to be pet anywhere! A heart-murmur of 1/6 can be heard and was confirmed on his recent Echocardiogram, but it is minor and he is not currently on any medication for it. Strenuous exercise is not recommended. Georgie has, what is believed to be, environmental allergies (don’t we all!) which are currently being treated with a pill while skin test results are pending.

We are not sure why, but Maggie and Georgie’s tails are docked (which makes for some extra cute wiggle-butts). Both dogs like to play a bit and are great with kids as well as other dogs. They know how to use a dog door and have not had any accidents at their foster home. Maggie and Georgie have both just had a dental cleaning and are up to date on their vaccinations and preventatives.

The ideal new home for this sweet pair is someone who is home most of the time and has a backyard for Maggie to explore. Otherwise these two would fit well into any home.
